BrianaZdradzinski of Reading has been named a Presidential Ambassador at Kutztown University.
Founded in 1997, the Presidential Ambassadors is a student organization that works directly with the President’s Office and the Kutztown University Foundation and Alumni Relations.

The quiet and serene campus turned quickly to excitement during Move-in Day at Lebanon Valley College. Happy greetings among roommates and staff assisting new families blended with the sounds of coaching whistles on the fields and music rising from the Pride of The Valley Marching Band on the quad.

PriscillaKim of Reading was selected to be a Presidential Fellow for the 2017-18 academic year at Susquehanna University.
Each year, approximately 20 sophomore students are selected to be Presidential Fellows. Deans and department heads nominate students they feel have the academic ability, enthusiasm and interest to benefit from co-curricular discussions of literature, theater and current events.
During the course of the year, the fellows are assigned two books to read and then discuss with University President Jonathan D. Green and other selected faculty and staff. The experience culminates in a trip, usually to New York City or Washington, D.C., to attend a theater production and perhaps interact with an author or artist.
Kim is an accounting major in the class of 2020. A 2016 graduate of Exeter Township High School, she is the daughter of Joshua and Chung Kim.

My name is Martha Conway, publisher of the new Berks County Courier.
As publisher of the successful Madison County Courier in my New York home, we’ve been quite successful helping underserved and often ignored segments of smaller communities, such as libraries, schools, non-profit organizations, law enforcement and churches – get the word out about their news, special events and programs.
With my son and his family residing in the Greater Reading area, I find myself spending more and more time here, and I want to bring this same community service to my home away from home in Berks.
I have 17 years’ experience in community journalism, and I want to provide the community and the organizations it serves an opportunity to share their news to an expanded audience. Our website pushes your news and events out to social media outlets, amplifying the audience that will learn about your goings-on.
